Dear researchers,

I want you to know the situation at the Jewish Cemetery in Kishinev,

You remember the story that the Prime Minister of Moldova "...demanded a plan to
restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev", and I should tell you that there are
good news, but also very bad news >from that cemetery:

The cemetery was cleaned up in the fall of 2018, and you can see >from a photo how
large is the cemetery, and as people on the ground are saying, it was cleaned up.

Aerial view:

The bad news are that a number of tombstones were damaged!!! =20

Now, I am getting information that there will be no construction of a new building
at the cemetery (museum or so), but there is going to be build a memorial probably
to the victims of the Holocaust...

If you have issues seeing the images, or questions, please email me at
